11. Native American Culture

11. Native American Culture

The Native American Culture is deeply rooted in tradition and a great place to understand the customs that are handed down from generation to generation. By studying the crafts, homes and symbols of Native Americans, we can learn more about their past and America's heritage. Projects include: Dream Catchers - Tradition says a dream catcher over your bed will catch the bad dreams in its net, good dreams pass through the center and back to you. You'll build yours using rings, cording, and beads; Rock Symbols - Duplicate ancient Native America symbols using acrylic paint on flat rocks and leave your own "message" to be found by future generations; Ceremonial Pipes - Commonly called peace pipes, ceremonial pipes is a more accurate term. Yours are made from plastic pipefittings and dowels; Faux Sandstone - Many examples of Native American art are carved into rocks and caves. Here you create your own faux rock with Styrofoam, sand and glue; then etch your own symbol; Sandpaper Teepees - The common Native American home is the teepee. Traditionally made of animal hides, tree trunks and decorated with symbols, your teepee uses sandpaper, chalk and crayons to duplicate the design; Hands On Project - Follow a high school class project to support "Warm Up America" by making afghans for the needy. 01/07DE PI 30 min.
